The first question went to Pokimane. A lot of people have wondered how streaming and acting for a movie are different. And that’s the first question that the interviewer asked Pokimane. She pointed out that when a content creator is streaming live, there’s little room for mistakes, but when you’re acting for a movie, you get second chances. “Honestly, it was kind of nice to be able to take a second take on something,” she said. “Usually, when you’re streaming, you gotta say it right the first time,” she added.

Then it was Ninja’s turn, and he seemed to agree with what Pokimane had said. “Absolutely the same,” he concurred. When a movie is being filmed, actors will sometimes make an error but the director will ask them to continue. This is because the part where the actor made the mistake can be edited out. This aspect of shooting a movie is one thing Ninja really seems to have loved. He also added that the way the film was shot was fantastic.

The next big question was regarding whether Ninja and Pokimane would pursue acting. And Ninja’s answer was in the positive. “I have three or four things that are coming,” he let the viewers know. While Ninja’s answer clearly suggested he loved the idea of pursuing acting, Pokimane seems more inclined towards just doing cameos. “I’ve never really seen myself as much of an actress,” she says.

What came next was a light-hearted conversation about who would be better at Free City Ninja or Pokimane. And overall, they are grateful that they could be part of a movie that could potentially become super successful.
